    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not going to change the world, but at least it manages to change first person shooters back into something more irreverent and fun.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Watching paint dry really can be entertaining, in this relentlessly cheerful mix of platformer and interactive colouring book.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not a real overhaul for the series, but it is the best version so far - and so by extension one of the best portable video games ever made.

    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent update of the classic old beat 'em-up that maintains the iconic two-player mode and adds some welcome new enhancements.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The pace of innovation is only fractionally slower in the second expansion to Relic's superb action strategy, with plenty to entertain new fans and old.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Faithful almost to a fault to the classic original, but still a stunning achievement for the DS and a thoroughly engrossing adventure in its own right.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If not the best tennis sim ever then certainly the most realistic, and with a training tool that should be the envy of any other game.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    No launch game benefits more from the 3DS's stereoscopic 3D than this almost illicitly addictive return to Ridge City.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The technical achievements don't come without a cost, and the game world still lacks personality, but this is still a first person shooter of impressive talents.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of the 3DS's best launch games but also one of the most accessible and entertaining turn-based strategies of recent years.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Lego game so far and one that defies both its simplicity and familiarity for an almost effortlessly entertaining co-op experience.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Neither nerdish simulator nor abstract arcade game, Shift 2 proves that compromises don't have to be boring - as long as they have autolog.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Superb mix of role-playing, puzzle and strategy action, with gorgeous new HD graphics and an addictive online mode.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The video game equivalent of a concept album, and a hugely successful mix of visual, music and gameplay influences.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Highbrow parody or the best lightsabre game never made? Suda51's deconstructionist classic manages to be both.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Wonderfully presented and impressively imaginative 2D action puzzler, that almost seems too good for DSiWare.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A loving, and genuinely funny, homage to old school role-players and the people that play them.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    At last a Fallout download that's genuinely worth the bandwidth, with a sparkling script that's better than either of the main games.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Achingly beautiful god sim that struggles at times over structure and difficultly curve, but never in terms of spectacle or vision.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An adult video game that is neither exploitative nor pretentious, but instead weaves a fun yet incisive tale about all too human characters.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best marriages of gameplay, graphics and music ever seen on a portable and a triumphant return to the roots of rhythm action.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of Cave's finest moments loses surprisingly little in its move to the iPhone, with excellent controls and plenty of extras.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Indie gaming at its retro-loving best, with some of the most cunningly-designed and purposefully infuriating 2D gameplay of the year.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best on-the-rails shooters ever made and vastly superior to the modern sequels, despite some minor issues with the remake.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Punishingly and infuriatingly hard, but also the best retro-inspired platform puzzler for years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A worthy successor that is sure to please many and is easily the best option for any Formula One fanatics out there. It's not without its problems, but it has moved the series forward with a vastly improved handling model and a more engrossing race environment that will almost certainly have you believing you really are Lewis Hamilton for a split-second.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great value co-op-orientated dual stick shooter that revels in its shallowness and makes a virtue of its one note, but superbly tuned, gameplay.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best action games ever made, but this is far from the definitive version and may actually be the worst.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent port from the PC, which maintains all of the original's innovative open-endedness and most of its graphical prowess.
